TNIV or NRSV
Here are Chris Heard's comments,
- You know what I really want? A translation that has the readability of the TNIV without the theological baggage that distorts the text—but not one that does as far as, say, the CEV in simplifying its vocabulary. Does anyone know of such a translation? Does it exist? Have I just missed it? Or is it time for a new translation project (maybe without the word “Standard” in the name—you don’t actually become a “standard” by claiming to be such)?
I remember last spring feeling discouraged when I realized that some translations have considerable problem issues but all translations have some problem issues.
